Kelly Back Behind Bars As His Money Problems Gets Worst

Last month, a Cook County judge issued an order that would send Kelly to jail if he didn't pay the $161,663 he owes his ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, by 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Kelly and the Cook County Sheriff's Office for further comment.

The arrest comes less than two weeks after Kelly put up $100,000 to be released from custody on criminal sexual abuse charges. The irony of his arrest is that he inferred that these allegations are keeping him from being a good father to his children.

Kelly's publicist, Darryll Johnson, said the musician showed up with $50,000 or $60,000, but the judge wanted the full amount paid. "I've told you millions and millions of times where I am, and I am very happy", she said. His next court hearing in the case is set for March 13.

R. Kelly spoke what he is calling his truth during an interview with CBS Wednesday morning, and it has people talking. Through their lawyer, Michael Avenatti, the Clarys stated: "We never received a penny from R. Kelly".

The interview with "CBS This Morning" was Kelly's first since he was charged. His defense attorney, Steve Greenberg, followed soon after. I just look at you're you and I am me. Court records indicate a 47-year-old Romeoville woman posted his bail, identifying herself on the bond slip as Kelly's "friend".

"He also indicated that these parents came forward after the money stopped", the attorney said about Kelly in a press conference on Wednesday.

The 52-year-old singer is accused in Chicago of sexually abusing four females dating back to 1998, including three underage girls.

"All of them are lying", Kelly said in segments of the interview broadcast Wednesday. Kelly has consistently denied any sexual misconduct and was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.

Interviewed by Gayle King for CBS News, she asked "What kind of love is it that keeps these young women away from their families?" "I gave you 30 years of my f-cking career", R. Kelly said during the interview.

Kelly was detained just over a week after he pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

"Joycelyn, we went from seeing you, talking to you weekly, to not seeing you for two years", Jonjelyn Savage, Joycelyn's mother, said.

The star also denied accusations, raised in the recent documentary Surviving R Kelly, that he held women against their will, confiscating their phones, restricting their food, and denying them access to their families.
